The outside is not so appealing, but inside is a real gem. The place is very relaxing, the placa is nice to stroll and take a rest, nice atmosphere there.

Facts and information. Beautiful and historical. We found out about the March festival too! We hope to coincide our return to Valencia with St Patricks day!

The museum is quite small situated at the back of the basilica. One would almost miss it because the entrance is on a small side street. The collection is devoted to the lady of the helpless - there are sculptures, paintings and other objects from the 14th century and later. I think if you are not or never was Catholic, this is a very boring place. To me it was interesting because i've never heard of this version of the virgin mary and it was just good to know about it. The labels the exhibits are only in Spanish or Valencians, so if you understand neither, the lack of information might get to you. But it was worth the 2 euros i paid to visit.

The art was amazing! Didn't get to stay very long, wish I could've. Located in a beautiful part of town with a lot of history.

The Basilica is located in a lovely square in the center of old Valencia. And it is next door to the Valencia Cathedral. Admission is free.

The Basilica was built between 1652 and 1667 and dedicated to the city's patron saint.

Due to late arrival via cruise ship, we didn't get to this sight till after 11:00 AM and it was very crowded. However, it was beautiful and well worth the visit.
